The 1-mile Horrocksford Branch runs from Horrocksford Junction, between Clitheroe and Chatburn on the Bolton, Blackburn, Clitheroe and West Yorkshire Railway, to the Horrocksford Lime Company's works at Horrocksford. The line dates from 1851, when the main line was opened as far at Chatburn. The company now produces cement and asphalt rather than lime. A video of a cement train at Horrocksford Junction in 2010 may be viewed here.
